Congratulations to Dr. Scott Rothbart, postdoctoral fellow in the Strahl lab, who has accepted a faculty position at the Center for Epigenetics at the Van Andel Research Institute beginning in April 2015.
The 18 members of the QEP steering committee, led by co-chairs Leslie Parise, professor and chair of biochemistry and biophysics, and Kevin Guskiewicz, professor of exercise and sport science and associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences, will develop the QEP’s focus, implementation and budget before presenting a draft plan to the Provost. One of the major focuses is improvement on science learning.
These findings published by the Bergmeier lab in the Journal of Clinical Investigation could lead to more personalized approaches to controlling platelet activity during heart attacks and other vascular emergencies and diseases.
Brian Strahl along with other scientists at UNC have created a new way to investigate epigenetic mechanisms important in diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s to cancers. Read more about their work published in Developmental Cell.
Researchers from the Parise lab participate in a campus-wide campaign that brings to attention the importance of lab safety.
Congratulations to lab manager Jeffrey Jones of the Cook, Kuhlman, and Strahl labs as the 2014 honoree.The Department's Staff Recognition Program was established to annually recognize a staff member for their outstanding achievement and service.
